The 80-year-old woman who ran her car into a Laval daycare centre last month is still able to drive, pending a new driving test.
A Laval police spokesperson told CJAD News that detectives had ordered the driver to re-take the standard driving test — which won't happen until after the holidays.

In the meantime, however, no one has taken her licence away, which means she could be on the road right now.
On the afternoon of Nov. 12, the driver apparently mistook the gas pedal for the brake pedal and plowed into the front window of the Face à Face daycare centre on St-Martin Blvd. in Chomedey.
Three young children were injured. They are all out of hospital, though one of the children still needs regular medical attention for serious facial injuries.
The daycare's owner says she expects to reopen the daycare within a week and a half.
